Starz 7 day free trial - I have picked Starz as it does not just have a large library of all kind of western movies from the biggest brand actors but also has regularly rotated premium movies and new blockbuster hits, it is an easy winner.

Amazon Prime is great value and just has a massive selection of Westerns, despite being filled with a lot of rubbish there are still plenty of premium and classic westerns to be enjoyed.

All Streaming Servcies for Western Movie Fans to Consider Comparison 

If you are looking a for a more in depth analysis of all the streaming services witha decent selection of western movies then continue to read below as we go through which each service has to offer.

1. Best Western Ever

Quick Overview: 7 Day Free Trial,  350+ Western Movies, $1.99 pm after trial

If you are after classic Western cinema then Best Western Ever has one of the biggest selections. The era of movies is prominently 40s/50s so is a narrow niche for western movie fans. If you are looking for more mainstream cinema with the likes of  John Wayne and Clint Eastwood then it probably isn't the service for you. It is available as an Amazon Channel with a 7 day free trial. It is also worth noting that it is only $1.99 pm

Pros

  • Biggest collection of old western movies
  • Available on Amazon Channels

Cons

  • Lack of Hollywood and blockbuster Westerns
  • No app or stand alone service

Quick Overview: 7 Day Free Trial,  5+ Western Movies, $9.99 pm after trial

Cinemax does not have a very large selection of Westerns so should not be considered if you are looking for a lot of western movies. I have included it as being a network it has a constant stream of updated premium movies meaning you should be able to find a couple of big western movies at any given time. At time of writing there is The Assassination of Jesse James and Open Range.

Pros

  • New content added regularly
  • Big Movies

Cons

  • Small Western Library

Quick Overview: 7 Day Free Trial,  200+ Western Movies, $5.99 pm after trial

Epix has over 200 Western Movies currently, however most of the collection is of older Westerns similar to the much cheaper service of Best Western Ever. Being a premium network service it does a handful of premium western movies as well as having a regularly updated library of content.

Pros

  • New content added regularly
  • Large Library

Cons

  • Mostly old westerns

Quick Overview: 7 Day Free Trial, 10>  Western Movies, $14.99 pm after trial

Fandor is a social movie streaming platform with lots of Independent, foreign and classic movies. Although it's Western selection is small and old it does have some great classics and hidden gems in all genres including Western. Fandor is a great place to discover movies you may have never come across otherwise.

Pros

  • Small selection of great movies
  • Allows you to discover movies

Cons

  • Small selection of westerns
  • Few mainstream movies

5. HBO Max

Quick Overview: 7 Day Free Trial,  20+ Western Movies, $3.99 pm after trial

For a large premium network the selection of western movies available on HBO is fairly small. Being a network the content is updated regularly with premium and new  movies. At time of writing there are films such as  Cowboy & Aliens Deadwood

Pros

  • Premium hit and newer movies
  • Regularly updated content

Cons

  • Small selection of westerns
  • Expensive if all you want is westerns

6. IMDB TV

Quick Overview: Free (lots if adverts),  60+ Western Movies

IMDB TV is a service only accessible in the US or through a VPN service and is completely free, however it has a lot of adverts that cannot be skipped. For a free service the selection of movies is impressive with around 60 Westerns at time of writing. It as a real mix of modern old and classic westerns of all different sub genre such as Outlaw or comedy westerns. Overall it is definitely making an account for some free movies. 

Pros

  • You can signup directly or just watch through your Amazon Prime
  • Free
  • Good selection of movies for a free service

Cons

  • Lots of adverts

Quick Overview: 7 Day Free Trial,  200+ Western Movies, $8.99 pm after trial

One of the Starz Network channels Starz Encore is a channel dedicated to old theatrical movies, which basically means a lot of premium western movies. All of this content is avaioable through the Starz On Demand service. With hundreds of westerns available to watch these are also a lot of really good movies. t time of writing it includes Clint Eastwood in A Fistful of Dollars and my personal favourite western Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid. It also has a number of popular western series and films form all era of western cinema.

Pros

  • Always has a selection of premium westerns
  • Large library from all eras 

Cons

  • Not much for western fans

8. Amazon Prime

Quick Overview: 30 Day Free Trial,  Hundreds of Westerns

It is never clear how many movies Amazon has on its prime service as it seems to be thousands. Their Western cinema collection is no different. Hundreds of movies and dozens of series, however the premium content is limited and then is mostly smaller movies from all over the place, I am unsure where they get all these unheard of movies. Having said this there is a lot of good westerns from old to new cinema.

Pros

  • Hundreds of movies and series in Western Library
  • Good value

Cons

  • Lots of rubbish movies to make collection look bigger

Quick Overview: 30 Day Free Trial,  1-2 Dozen Westerns, $5.99 pm after trial

Hulu has a modest collection of westerns with some premium content and some older westerns. At time of writing they have Back to The Future 3 (the best western ever), The Assassination of Jesse James and Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid, so some really good movies. If you are just looking for the occasional western then this is a great option especially at its low price. Hulu also has the Live TV service which is more expensive but allows you to add networks such as Starz and HBO so you can expand your library. 

Pros

  • Some really good westerns
  • Great value

Cons

  • Few Western movies

Quick Overview: 30 Day Free Trial,  30-40 Westerns, $8.99 pm after trial

Netflix always has a good selection of movies, the only issue is our perceptive as most of us have already exhausted our Netflix library. It has a fair selection of  but pretty much all modern westerns with little to no classics from the likes of Clint Eastwood or John Wayne. Netflix is still great value as an overall streaming service but not the best for Westerns.

Pros

  • Newer westerns
  • Great value

Cons

  • Few Western movies
  • little/no classic westerns
